Blogs?

Recommended Posts

Does anyone have a blog? Just wondering, I started one in April and kinda of neglected it until the other night when I finally updated it (I blame school and work for my neglect). Anyway, now I'm fascinated with looking at people's blogs (aww, the ways I entertain myself!). Anyone want to share?

 

In the sake of fairness, you can check out my whole two entries in my blog at the link in the siggy,

I have one that I will write on about once a week. This is a good way for some of my out of state friends to keep in contact. Love your blog!

My whole family has a blog. Each and every one of us can post on the blog. Its actually kinda fun!! Even my mom and dad use it....they're trying to be more computer literate. I think they really like it because not alot of people have a "family" blog. We can post pics and videos...its fun.

What a great idea!! One of my cousins recently ran across some old photos of my grandparents that no one had ever seen before. She made the suggestion that we try to do something to stay more connected as a family and share news and information--since we've grown so large that we're slowly growing apart.

How did you guys set this up? I think this would be a great idea for our family!

I agree with Gionne! That sounds like a great idea, Conster. How didyou go about setting it up? My family has a yahoo group that we set up to keep tracking of birthdays and "gift lists", but a blog would be cool.

My grandfather is the youngest of 11 kids so my mother has hundreds of cousins. One of my cousins created this site and it is a great way for all of us to keep in touch. I have a cousin who is in Iraq now and it is a great way for him to keep up-to-date. I'm not sure if it costs anything.

That's exactly what we need. (I love how it's password protected!)

 

We were discussing how we really don't know any of the younger children and they don't know us. (There are 19 of us in the first round of neices and nephews.) We would love a place to share news and events

 

I'm definitely going to look into easysite.com! Thanks so much for sharing! smile03.gif

Cool site, Kate! I am looking into it now. Perhaps I can set up a family website and have it be a surprise at Christmas or something. We have a new neice in the family, so pics are going to be going around like crazy!

My sister was the one that set ours up. I think you can just go to www.blogger.com I'm not sure though if you can set these ones up to be password protected. I know ours isn't....but maybe we should look into that.

    • Good afternoon, I wanted to inquire if anyone has or knows someone who got married at this resort. How was it? How are the coordinators? Packages that were chosen. Any help would be greatly appreciated.   Thanks.
    • Hi all! I know this is an old thread... but just in case there are other destination wedding brides out there with the same question, I thought I would answer! My guy and I live in Texas and just got our marriage license (yay!). We are getting married in Playa del Carmen, Mexico. The Dallas County clerk informed us that we can get our marriage license in Texas, bring it and a Texas-registered officiant to Mexico, have the ceremony in Mexico, then bring the marriage license back to Texas to file and it will be LEGAL in the US.  In  other words, we can legally get married in Mexico using our Texas marriage license and officiant (who is a family friend), then file the paperwork when we get home. Where it says 'county in which ceremony was performed' on the license, we just put in Playa del Carmen, Mexico and bam! Married :) I do not know if this is true for other states, but it is CONFIRMED for Texas! I suggest asking the clerk when you register for your marriage license. I am overjoyed that we can have a US-legal marriage in Mexico so our wedding date on our license will be the actual day! NO blood tests, or getting married before or after the trip required!  
    • Every Bride spends a lot of time researching and worrying about her perfect wedding dress. While many Indian brides choose the traditional red colour for their bridal gown, a few of them find some different colours to wear on their special day. Here is a description of how to choose an Indian wedding dress that suits your skin tone. 1) Fair complexion: You can choose any shade of blue or bright shades of pink and red. In the shades of blue- select scuba blue or royal blue. Among other colours this season, you can pick up your dress in tangerine.   2) Wheatish complexion Just select those colours which bring out the warmth in your complexion. Some of the best options for you are tangy orange, saffron yellow, vibrant shades of red, mint green and hot pink.   3) Dusky complexion: If you have an olive skin tone, then you can pull off any rich and dark colour quite well. So, the colours like classic blue, marsala, burnt orange and brick red are just perfect for you. Also the metallic silver, gold and bronze will even flatter your face pretty well
    • I will be using the hPage Website Builder to create a free website for our wedding. I am planning to post wedding updates, wedding photos, wedding reminders, and wedding articles regarding our upcoming marriage there. For RSVP, I am using Facebook events since almost all we invited have facebook and it would be easier to get their "yes" or "no" confirmation there. In case anyone is interested as well here's their site: hPage Website Builder - https://www.hpage.com
